Our editor’s pick is the Floyd platform bed, a sturdy and dependable floating bed made of grade-A birch plywood. The wood is designed in a honeycomb pattern to keep the bed as lightweight as possible, and the wood meets CARB-2 certification for minimal formaldehyde emissions. As for the bed itself, it features a timeless design that should integrate seamlessly with the aesthetic of most rooms.
Floyd prides itself on having made a customizable floating bed that can be used for years. The bed is modular, with panels that can be added or removed to adapt to different-size mattresses. The company also makes a headboard and underbed storage that can hold up to 100 pounds. Powder-coated steel supports and nylon ratchet straps minimize noise and prevent creaking. The Floyd platform bed is made in the U.S. and backed by a 30-day sleep trial and 10-year warranty.
